The answer to the question, what has influenced me most at my work, is simple.

It was the moment when I understood what glass is. Professor Stanislav Libensky at Prague Academy of Applied Arts led his students so that they could answer that question themselves. But the journey to that knowledge is not easy, it takes a long time and is not finished through studying at Academy. That often lasts a lifetime.

Fasten your eyes into the substance of the glass sculpture and many secrets will definitely be unveiled to you.

The glass itself is a model of the universe. The inner structure of the glass, its veils, its bubbles are formed and clustered according to the same laws as the galaxy. The seemingly unchangeable universe is in constant motion, is liquid. Glass is liquid under normal conditions although it appears as a solid mass. It does not have its crystallic lattice.

The glass itself can be cracked and maybe even the universe may be as well. The surf water of the mighty ocean matter is spilling across the smooth sandy beach. Work feature two sides. On of chaos: the boiling point of matter and space on one side. The other harmony: a clean thin line of order and calm. The movement of light, energy, sadness and joy all have the same principle to me. – Jan Exnar
